    Just came back from scbirdfarm's open house. There MAY be lavender silkies there! I bought one that looked lav in their light. Looks more white at my house. Might be the black skin showing through feathers, but there's two left. Go get 'em!

    Why white hens? I thought you paired them up with black hens?

    They are still a work in progress... I'm hoping to keep the best lavender boy and breed him to my three gorgeous black silkie pullets. [​IMG]

    I am so glad that there are other chicken people that drive reasonable (or as my family would say, "ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND?!") distances for chickens.

    I have a giant pale splash Jersey Giant, and I just pretend she is lavender, until I really get lavender birds!
